Man Utd legend Scholes: I prefer watching Salford to Premier League

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes admits he enjoys watching Salford City more than the Premier League.

He's come to the conclusion that it's a more interesting spectacle than the top flight.

"I probably do enjoy watching Salford more," he wrote in a new book - Class of 92: Out of our League – Our Journey Back to the Heart of the Game - currently being serialised in The Guardian.

"I don't know if it's as much that I don't like the hassle of going to the game, getting in, sitting in traffic. Going to Salford, I park up behind the goal and get out of my car.

"But I genuinely get more enjoyment from watching even my son's team, Royton Town. It's like a men's team, but he's 16. He started playing a few games for them last season. I went to watch him once, it was 5-4. It's just entertainment."
